Leipzig might not be allowed a European licence because RB-Saltzburg are owned by the same people and UEFA won't allow both teams to compete in the same competition. They are a franchise. If its really a problem that we cannot compete with clubs like this then its time to give up
Also they have a salary cap of 3mil euro which is probably less than what the players who prop up our bench get paid.
There is only 7 clubs in world football who earn more money than us so why has it become acceptable for us to lose out on players to clubs below us or ones that barely even make the list ? According to Forbes we trump Dortmund by at least 150million annually and our net worth is almost twice theirs and 3 times the likes of Athletico who earn less than half what we do in a year but yet somehow our fans believe these clubs can afford to pay outrageous salaries to their players.
Most will blame it on everything else like the weather rather than accept the truth that FSG do not want to pay attention never mind the fee's needed to obtain better players even though its well within their capacity to do so.
A quick Google will show that players like Reus and Aubameyang earn 4 million euro a year
Players like that in our side would cement us in the CL spots and go along way towards attracting top young talent to play alongside them. Somehow I don't think the likes of demarai grey or ben chilwell will have the same effect.
